Sweet Potato Praline Casserole

From the Kitchen of Darby HawleyDSC_0293-2
This is one dish that I absolutely treasure during the holiday season.  Not just for the nostalgic feeling, but also my sweet tooth depends on it during the holidays.  After several years of tweaking the recipe, here is my Sweet Potato Praline Casserole.  Enjoy!

Sweet Potato Ingredients:
1-16 oz can sweet potatoes
¼ cup soft butter
¾ cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 and ¼ cup evaporated milk
½ tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
¼ tsp ground nutmeg

Praline Topping Ingredients:
½ cup light brown sugar
2 tbs all-purpose flour
¼ cup soft butter
½ cup finely chopped pecans

Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. Drain and mash sweet potatoes.
3. Add all other sweet potatoes ingredients to the sweet potatoes, mixing well after each addition.
4. Place sweet potato mixture in a shallow casserole dish.
5. Mix praline topping and layer onto the sweet potatoes.
6. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
